Aya Matsuura thread 2007 Week 26 (June 24 - June 30)

from here to here


The week started off with Matt reporting that accoording hurtwou the News24 brief he had uploaded on the tracker contained the messages of a new Aya single (but more of that in the days to come :-). Matt also as usual posted some caps from the new Meringue, with japanese_boy following up with another nice pic:


And then Fumi started the celebration, because - of course


and some official UFA birthday images (including Miki's message):

Pictures provided by Fumi, Maiko^o^, Nights4Saturn, sintengpig, ILoveMico and Matt, with wishes from a lot more people :-)))
Fumi asked whether I would throw a birthday party. Well I did, but I had only invited Aya. And I'm not gonna tell you whether she accepted the invitation or not!

Matt found Aya singing a Chinese version of Hyacinth. It was recorded while her "Live in Shanghai" concert served as bluescreen footage for a Taiwanese TV movie called "Aijou shin kokyuu". More info in the torrent description, but you can find both the video and the mp3 in the RS folder. (pic not in thread). blackwin commented: I think she's pretty good as singing chinese's song :-) In that live she made a lot of mistake and when she made it she's very CUTE!

rnwc reported the completion of "Aijou Ippon" episode 5's subs, nicely promoting the other episodes :-)))

There was a report about some GAM backstage special on kikaku.tvguide.or.jp, but nothing surfaced unfortunately.

sville1999 discovered that there was a blog for the stageplay "Sukedachi"
